romney? >> if he's going double down on the 47% remark, it will cause difficulties. we know the overwhelming number of those people work and have children. >> president obama and the economy. how is he managed to avoid public retribution for not fixing the economy? >> it's not a normal thing. >> the extraordinary work of a clinton initiative. >> keep pushing the rocks up the hill. >> big ideas from the big names. dee pock chopra, things get lively at the global initiative. you want to make farming sexy, don't you? this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> mr. president, thank you very much for sparing the time to talk to me. you are in the eighth year now, of the clinton global initiative. i would imagine all the world leaders you managed to amass here, there are a few topics of concentrated attention. probably right at the top of the list would be this simmering tension between israel and iran. now, i interviewed president ahmadinejad last night and he was adamant that he has no plan to build a nuclear weapon, that he has purely peaceful intention. clearly, most people here don't bel

world. president obama and mitt romney both spoke at the cgi today. president clinton stole the show. the democratic national convention had tough advice for the republican candidate. >> mitt romney went down well with the audience. >> if there's one thing we have learned this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. >> what words would you have for mitt romney, given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think you know the debates are very important. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's gonna double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties because we now know the overwhelming number of those people work and have children. the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is because the median income is as low as 1995. until the current election season, republicans and democrats supported both the child tax credit and the earned income tax credit. i doubled the earned income tax credit. it was signed under a republican president. reagan started it. we started it with a strong support of re

they are trying to calm down in the obama camp, don't lose your temper. romney is pretty cool. i watched him under fire in the republican nominee debates. he was a pretty cool customer. obama can get rattled. >> he had a couple bad moments. the famous however many thousands of dollars bet it was with rick perry. that was not mitt romney at his best. overall, the thing about president obama is that his skill is in oratory. he's great at sort of exhorting crowds and inspiring people who already agree with him but throughout his presidency and this has been true in interviews, true in press conferences, true in his speeches, he's struggled with the art of persuasion, the art that bill clinton obviously mastered so well. so there, i think there is a weakness for him in the debate, that he has a sort of, he can stumble too, not in the same way that romney can, but he can sort of get tangled up in his slightly professorial style and lose the plot, if you will. >> important as this may be to the romney fortunes, it's a day we discover the romney campaign is planning to unleash, this is

because the 47% scandal, as it was really, should have brought him down, really, mitt romney. it was so awful. you could have thought in previous election campaigns that could have been the game changer. looking at it now in totality, barack obama's poor performance at the debate has been more damaging to him than the 47% was to mitt romney. >> i think potentially. look, the debate was watched by 70 million people which is a lot more than the 47% tape. so a lot of good momentum that obama had in september was undone in an hour and a half. that was a very damaging evening for the president. at the same time, it's not likely we will talk about the denver debate as a lead story one or two weeks from now. something new will take its place. maybe it's a good story for obama, maybe not. but voters' memories will fade some. that's why we do look at the long term and also the economic numbers where obama did get one good piece of news where with the unemployment rate falling below 8%. we now think the economy's good enough where he's probably a narrow favorite on that basis. the numbers look si

president obama than mitt romney. he wants to go back to the same tax cut, deregulation, top down trickle down economics that failed us so miserably in the past. on foreign policy, you know, either he has no plan or he simply wants to show strength which can lead to all kinds of calamities again just like we have in the past. i think president obama's got the better message, the better economic message, the better foreign policy message and yes, we need to deliver it a lot better than he did at that debate. there's no question about that. but the substance, what's actually going to impact the american people, that's where president obama has the advantage. we just need to make that case. >> congressman, thank you very much. >> thank you, piers. i appreciate the chance. >>> we've heard from politicians on both sides. coming up, the one man who may really know what this means for the election, nate silver. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with lo

tonight, d-day. debate day is just 24 hours away. president obama and mitt romney are deep into their final debate preparation as the clock ticks down for the big event in denver. meanwhile, their top surrogates are out on the campaign trail. paul ryan speaking out for romney in iowa. >> a handful of states will determine this outcome. a handful of states will determine which way our country goes. so you not only have a huge responsibility, you have a tremendous opportunity. >> meanwhile, michelle obama has been stumping for her husband, the president, in ohio. >> this election will be even closer than the last one. that is the only guarantee. understand that. >> against that backdrop i sat down with the man who shocked the political establishment when he was elected governor of one of the biggest states of the union, arnold schwarzenegger has always been bigger than life. it all came crashing down in a very big way. i first interviewed him in the early '90s. since then he's had of course seen the end of his marriage to maria shriver and the end of his two terms as governor. he tells

second term. he and governor romney know the election's all about the economy and both men were trading jabs today in the battleground state of virginia. >> today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> when i'm president of the united states, that unemployment rate is going to come down not because people are giving up and dropping out of the work force, but because we're creating more jobs. i will create jobs and get america working again. >> let's get right to tonight's big story. with senator john mccain, the arizona senator and former presidential candidate joining me now. welcome to you, senator. >> thank you, piers. >> we are going to come to the debate in a moment. you've been one of the only people who debated both barack obama and mitt romney so you're in a unique place to tell me what you made of the new style romney and indeed, obama. before we get there, though, today's big news on the jobs front. whichever way you spin this from the republican

think you do have to pull that down a little bit. i do believe that mitt romney has not demonstrated that he's agile. he's not kind of light on his feet. so the idea that if you had a tough spot in a debate, whether the moderator pushed or obama pushed and could romney not talking from zingers that he's rehearsed, not talking from talking points, be agile enough to say i can answer these questions because these are my convictions. i think romney's biggest problem is a lack of conviction. he kind of operates and looks as if he's wearing someone else's skin and he's talking using someone else's beliefs. >> ross, what do you make of that? i think barack obama definitely the last time he did this four years ago, he showed flashes of a temper. which if i was in the romney camp, i would be just keep goading him. i'm sure that's what they are trying to calm down in the obama camp, don't lose your temper. romney is pretty cool. i watched him under fire in the republican nominee debates. he was a pretty cool customer. obama can get rattled. >> he had a couple bad moments. the famous however m

worn down and beaten and frankly, he looked like a person who didn't feel like he had to fight for the presidency of the united states. that's the real problem, piers. that's why -- and romney in contrast looked at the president, he put the president's record on notice. he was in command of the issues, and you know what, i think barack obama was stunned. he was like oh, my gosh, i have never had anybody call me out on my record and like mitt romney said, you know, mr. president, you can say until the cows come home that i'm going to add $5 trilliono the deficit but it doesn't make it true. i think what we saw last night, we saw mitt romney, who looks presidential, who has a plan for the future, who talked about his plan and talked about creating 12 million jobs. what we saw from president obama was -- wait a minute, piers. what we saw once again was -- >> this is my show, young lady. moving to brent o'donnell at high speed. now, from a purely technical point of view, in the way that barack obama conducted himself in appearance last night, a few things surprised me. most of all as i

was live tweeting, this continual looking down at his notes, disengaging completely from mitt romney. i just thought it looked strange. >> yeah. you know, his body language, whatold an incredible story, the way he communicated last night said more than he actually said with his mouth. maria said he looked into the camera. he was looking down at his notepad way more than he was looking into the camera and his body language basically said you know, i'm not interested in being here, i'm irritated i have to be here, i'm going to argue with the moderator for five seconds and i'm going to, you know, really just kind of check out of the debate. he was totally disengaged last night, and i think it was because he was in shock. mitt romney went on offense from the very beginning of the debate -- >> okay, but let me jump in there. let me ask maria that. why on earth would barack obama be in shock that mitt romney was attacking him given it's exactly what mitt romney did in the entire republican debate race, particularly in florida against newt gingrich, as he said earlier. did he not watch thos
